The Sun Covers the Congestion Charge Hile

The congestion charge in London will rocket 30% next month and NOW be enforced seven days a week, as the far left wing mayor struggles to pay for his debt-ridden transport system. And still under lock-down, the £11.50 charge will be reintroduced on Monday (18 May), along with the ultra-low emission zone which costs £12.50 for most vehicles and £100 for heavy lorries or coaches. “Sadiq Khan has truly shown his ego driven political colours, yet again. His latest chronic anti-driver policy will kill off  many of London’s struggling small and medium sized businesses, the haulage industry, van distributors and hardworkingRead Whole Article

Fuel Supply Chain Rip-Off

Updated May 14th Whilst the UK is in anguish and economic decline due to the unforeseen COVID19 tragedy, the Government has reacted laudably with various financial means to help businesses, employers, and employees. Yet the unchecked big oil brands and their fuel supply chain wholesalers have deliberately profiteered during the crisis. The evidence is incriminatory but ignored by the CMA and the Government too. The magnitude of the profiteering is on a scale that commands independent investigation. Here are the facts: In the 3 months between December 2019 to February 2020 average pump prices against average wholesale prices including allRead Whole Article

Here are the shocking statistics that still prove the fuel supply is deliberately profiteering, and even worse during #COVID19 lockdown. In this worrying time for all of us. wholesale petrol fell 21%, yet pump prices dropped on average just 9%. Diesel wholesale dropped 17% with filling up costs dropping by only 9%. And its not the independent garages fault either, they are being bullied by wholesalers and the big oil companies who are charging them sky high prices to their bulk deliveries. Average retail and wholesale Fuel Prices for the 3 months of Dec/Jan/Feb compared to the period of Corona-virusRead Whole Article

It has to stop, and it has to stop now! The fuel supply chain is deliberately not passing on the huge oil price crash values and wholesale price falls to retailers at the pumps. “Wholesale prices of diesel and petrol have plummeted. Pump prices have not followed suit anywhere near. The gap is growing by the day. It is more than shocking that in this time of an unprecedented health crisis, there are businesses deliberately holding back beneficial prices at the pumps. The unscrupulous fuel supply chain must be held to account, with an independent PumpWatch price monitoring watchdog being putRead Whole Article

Our rookie Chancellor has listened to common sense and frozen Fuel Duty for an unparalleled 10th consecutive Budget since George Osborne’s instinctive one penny cut in 2011. Rishi is hailed with a huge sigh of relief, by our 1.7m supporters, motorists, motorcyclists, van drivers and the commercial heartbeat of our economy, hauliers. His decision has been pressured by the ‘keep duty frozen’ letters, orchestrated by the indefatigable Robert Halfon MP and Esther McVey MP signed in total by 53 backbench Tory MPs. Our research showed that 2 out of 3 Tory voters in the red wall seats would take backRead Whole Article

In a Survey of on-line FairFuelUK Supporters between 21-25 Feb, small businesses, self employed drivers, pensioners and the employed explained how a Fuel Duty Hike will impact on them “The crass annual fuel duty turmoil could be halted for good. Any levy hike on the world’s highest taxed drivers, impacts brutally on small businesses with no choice to push Boris’s tax grab treachery onto their customers. Pensioners too, say they will see less of their families whilst having to cut back on keeping warm. The narrow-minded Treasury knows full well, lower fuel tax generates jobs, reduces inflation, adds more GDPRead Whole Article

As we approach the first Budget from an unfettered Conservative Government, will Rishi Sunak be bullied to add to its 5th largest revenue stream? Rumours abound, that number 11’s £40bn+ cash cow may be engorged with an unanticipated and completely unwarranted 2p fuel duty hike. Boris Johnson’s pre-election promise to the Sun and FairFuelUK, that Fuel Duty will not be raised looks to have been scuppered by the unelected Dominic Cummings. A spectre that unpredictably grows darker each day over Boris’s promising sovereignty. When Quentin Willson and myself interviewed Boris Johnson in 2016 at his Vote Leave HQ, our currentRead Whole Article

Quentin Willson, Motoring Journalist, Broadcaster and Co-Founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign said: ‘Why are we spending £100bn on a 250 mph railway when our roads are congested, pock-marked ruins? To really lower carbon emissions spend the money on free-flowing roads, off shore wind, solar and EV charging hubs. There will be no electric revolution if we don’t have roads to travel on.’ Howard Cox, Co-Founder of the FairFuelUK Campaign said: ‘Today Cabinet Politicians have ignored economic reality and decided to screw motorists, van drivers and truckers, the very commercial heartbeat of UK PLC. It’s staring everyone in the face, freeingRead Whole Article

Dear Prime Minister, Chancellor and Transport Minister. On behalf of 1.7m supporters, I’d appreciate you read our evidence for significant investment into our crumbling roads infrastructure versus the huge investment in HS2. Our supporters were encouraged by FairFuelUK to vote for the Conservative Party in the G Election. Please see my comments, in the Sun article shown here, as a chosen expert on transport, published just before December 12. You can see what I said about Labour forming a Government and their detrimental impact on UK’s 37m drivers. Prime Minister, Chancellor and Transport Minister , please be mindful of whatRead Whole Article
